With the release of Android 11, the operating system's developers seek to enhance how users communicate—with the upgraded release focused on managing conversations and improving how it interacts with connected devices, while also offering increased privacy measures so that users have more control over their data.
To enhance communication, Android 11 offers a dedicated space in its notifications section where users will be able to access conversations across different messaging apps. With this feature, users also have the option to prioritize specific conversations, ensuring they never miss notifications from specific people. Meanwhile, the addition of 'Bubbles' prevents users from having to close an app to respond to a message, making multitasking easier than ever.
While Android 11 includes a wide array of new features that consumers can take advantage of, a few other noteworthy ones include its redesigned media controls, the integration of Android Auto for all users that have compatible vehicles, and "auto-reset" permissions that grant more control over apps.
